TORONTO, Feb. 2013 / CNW / - Groupe Média TFO brings together professionals from the world of education for a forum to be held on February 25 and 26, 2013 in Toronto, under the sign of music and education.

During this event, TFO will receive speakers from various backgrounds who will share the fruit of their research and their experience. TFO first invites you to a conference-talk on February 25 at the Royal Conservatory of Music in Toronto for half a day on the theme of music. For the occasion, guest speakers are violin virtuoso Angèle Dubeau, and associate professor at the Faculty of Education of the University of Ottawa, Jonathan Bolduc. These conferences will be followed by a cocktail to highlight the launch of the new TFO Education platform.

Our February 26 will meet at Groupe Média TFO's head office for a day dedicated to discovering new initiatives developed by it and its partners, including the Franco-Ontarian Center for Educational Resources (CFORP), the National Film Board (NFB), SOS Homework, etc.

During the past year, TFO completed research and development activities in order to offer a whole new web experience to subscribers to TFO Education services.  “Our offer of educational resources will better support teachers, students and their parents since it is more accessible and it presents innovative content that enriches the range of products available for a more traditional context of the classroom. ", explained Glenn O'Farrell, President and CEO of Groupe Média TFO.

“The redesign of the TFO education website represents a crucial element in supporting teachers through its offer of multiplatform content adapted to the needs of the school world. This brand new site offers new features, including creating a user account giving access to videos from any computer, sharing resources with a class and creating bookmarks with personal notes ”, added Julie Caron, Head of Educational Services at Groupe Média TFO.

The Forum will be an opportunity to share and learn more about the resources and practices made available to actors in the world of education.
